COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lacu, a "Beer of the Abbey", boasts an ancient heritage dating to the days when friars brewed this fine blonde bier from secret recipes they guarded for centuries. Today, Belgium brewers use these same recipes to produce Lacu, an exquisite bier made from the finest ingredients: spring water, barley malt, hops, coriander, and orange. Lacu is labeled and corked by hand in order to preserve its superior quality. Uncork the elegant Lacu bottle and you’ll hear the effervescence releasing its subtle and original flavors. The refined taste of Lacu evokes memories of the world’s earliest brewers and their distinctive style. Enjoy Lacu, the "holy grail of Beer".

Dacrza (598) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Date tasted: June 27, 2013... Glassware: Duvel oversized tulip... Occasion: goodbye school year, hello, summer--and goodbye NBA draft anxiety,, hello Anthony Bennett?!... Appearance: thick, falling-from-the-club-type foam head that sits unevenly on a pale, peach body of slow-paced carbonation--worthy of repeated viewing... Aroma: sports a softened mux of coriander and light hops--some bright banana and sugar tease, but not full-nostriled... Palate: rather smooth with wrinkles of aftertaste; slight carbonation gives it a champagne mouthfeel but much drier... Taste: sweetish? honeyesque? a delicate-tasting orange profile that doesn’t maintain its strength... Overall: From the start, gives one high hopes,, and on this day, when Cleveland moves forward, I’d like to think this beer is a good deal like Bennett--capable of great things despite its inability to truly be a #1 draft....

nuplastikk (4971) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2013
750ml bottle split with Anndiesel. Hazy, unfiltered yellow-tan body. Slow rising carbonation bubbles, massive fluffy white head. Serious floaties. Really odd spice tones, with some banana tinges, with that toasted almond/chestnut malt feel the Italians cannot get enough of. Not unlike a Belgian Blonde, but spiced out, and finishes like a banana forward hefeweizen. Unique I suppose, sort of teetering on Gruit. Has a nice, pleasant mouthfeel. Not bad, but not really worth a premium price.

Pith (159) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow-gold with frothy high carbonation white head. Aroma vanilla with a small amount of clove. Vanilla to high carbonation champagne ending with orange peel and clove spiciness. Good. Almost like a Hoegarden with less.

Overml01 (226) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2013
While the head left much to be desired and the appearance was nothing to mention, the beer itself isn’t bad. Picked up two dozen for $1 each in the discoed bin, and am very glad I did so. Slightly yeasty sessionable brew with some light citrus notes and slightly thin dry finish. Nothing too distinctive, but worth every penny (and more, really) which I will happily quaff away on my easy drinking nights.

McGarnigle (577) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
I bought this on sale, but it was still kind of pricey. Good looker, great head. Not a ton of taste. Some citrus comes through, probably more orange peel than coriander. No tartness. They recommend this with risotto or chicken, and it probably will work better with food than alone. It reminds me a little of Estrella Damm Inedit.

Ernest (6603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with light notes of lemon zest, pineapple, butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pretty lame. Husky and dull nose, which even has some diacetyl. Bland and husky in the mouth. Disappointing.

Ratman197 (10922) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, orange zest, coriander and yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, orange zest, light wheat and light yeast with a crisp lingering orange finish.

JaBier (5315) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear and chunky gold pour with a huge white head. Aroma of malt, funk and slight spice. Malty flavor with some herbal character before a mild finish.
